What I Wore: Black Floral Green


Today’s indoor shoot brought to you by rainy-cloudy-thundery skies the last 2 days. So this is what I am, in fact, wearing this exact moment. I’m even sitting in that exact chair below (yes, you get a glimpse into my glamorous office decor, haha). I wasn’t sure about bright kelly green jeans at first, but there’s just something so perfect about this color paired with black and white that they’ve won me over. It helps that this pair is super comfortable, too.

So, life lately: rain; work; Sims 3; reading; paychecks still frustratingly out in the ether instead of in my PO box. Yeah. And the two I’ve been expecting the past few days are from two clients who usually pay very promptly. They’re not technically overdue quite yet, but when a client repeatedly pays promptly (like I have the check 2 days after invoicing promptly) you get used to that and expect that. More to the point, my bank account expects that. The postal service doesn’t take a holiday for Easter, so it’s not like service was interrupted. Hmph. I really hope they show up tomorrow morning, because I need to go to the grocery store. Ian’s got date night dinner covered tonight, but groceries/home meals are usually my thing and we are flat out of make-able things.

That’s not to say things are dire. Far from it. I have more than enough coming in to cover my expenses, it’s just that timing everything is always a balancing act. I hate to have to use my credit cards or pull money out of savings, because those are two areas I’m really working on this year (eliminating the first, growing the second). And I know everything will be fine, it’s just these thin days waiting for money stress me out.

Whew. Ok. End stressy rant. To lighten the mood, scroll down for adorable puppy.

Fellow self-employed people, do you have the same juggling act with your finances?
